Six years ago, an unimaginable horror known as Tirek came to Equestria. His power was nigh impossible, requiring the Elements, the Lovers and the Alicorns all to pour their very souls into holding him. In their absence, Prince Blueblood took the crown. But, Blueblood's reign is simply a mask for the Guard's dictatorship, while rebels cling to the idea of a free republic and strange cults tout the value of freedom from any governance. With all this, why would anypony spare a thought for the comet that filled the night sky for weeks before falling?

<Color hex code: 4D5D73>
<Color hex code: DBD7D2; Normally keeps mane neat, longer than some mares, and straight. Though occasionally ties all of it back with a hairband when moving around alot/performing>

<Color hex code: 9966CC (Amethyst)>
<"Happy" Shakespearean actors mask (Or whatever it's official name is, the clique masks that come to mind when talking about old-age drama) with a throwing knife going through the mask in a layer behind it.
The mask represents her strong and dominant acting ability, being comfortable on stage, complete immersion as character, and so forth. Doesn't mean she's a instant silver tongue though, she just has very good talents as one.
The knife represents her more daring side, taking risks 'on the edge (of the knife)', while having a secondary effect of defining that 'action' to be linked with knives.>
<She may not look like it, but she is extremely agile and dexterous, yet she can throw a knife hard and long enough to be fatal if needed. High stamina too. Depending on occasion, may wear clothing. >
<Usually happy-go-lucky when talking to other ponies, she is a kind and soft pony, the kind that walks up to strangers if they're troubled, and pacifist who dislikes the current tyranny.
She also performs daring stunts which challenge her, and as a result, always takes a 'no retreat' approach to difficult situations, pushing herself. While on 'duty', she tends to keep bloodshed, let alone actual violence, to a minimum, using her wits and acting to get past difficult situations. However, it would be very unwise to anger her, or corner her. She bites back very hard.
Possesses a very high liking for 'nocturnal' environment (i.e, low/no-light conditions, night-time, etc). Prefers nightlife over daytime activities.>
<Tyrants, the current monarchy, absolutely hates violence and bloodshed (though not squeamish)>
<Returning to a full simple life of acting, maybe starting up as a teacher for the dramatic arts, to see the end of all violence and peace across the land, to Equestria restored to it's former glory, and also make her (deceased) parents proud.>
<Equestria plunging into chaos, her friends/colleagues being caught and executed, >
<Not much to say, born as only mare to two loving Earth pony parents in Ponyville, Bright Pen (Mother, small-time author, literature teacher) and Script Light (Father, Playwright [though reluctantly shares his plays, they are considered quite good]). Cutie Mark gained when her acting as a villain in a childhood fairy tale (she protested, but it was that part or nothing) earned a energetic applause and repeated encore requests, the mark of grand success, with the minor side effect of leaving some of the more superstitious ponies that attended have nightmares for days.>
<She wanted to run away from home and join the circus as a knife-throwing performer, and practiced secretly at night, but backed out in the end, she was too deeply attached to her parents emotionally to run away for such things. School life went on as normal, as she was seen as one of the more talented actors. Her drama teacher recommended she move on to Canterlot or Manehatten to expand her craft.
Post-schooling, she left for Canterlot (mainly because it was closer to home), and joined a small drama academy there. Though it wasn't prestigious, the teachers were trained and encouraging of Night's ideas. It was here she earned the stagename "Knife Trick", for her superb acting in a play that almost felt realistic due to the atmospheric and character immersion. At this point, Tirek comes into play, and with that, the end of her profession. Well, mostly,considering the tighter grips on society in Canterlot, though she continued for a few years into her adulthood, and temporarily joined a circus for fun, just for a year.>
<With notification that her Father has passed on, she took a break from her (relatively) successful acting streak, and returned to Ponyville. Only to find her Mother dead too. Though doctors said both died of natural causes, she wasn't convinced, and her fears were true, when a close family friend had told Night that her parent's were falsely accused of collaborating with rebels, and poisoned. Then revealing that she was the conspirator, and offered Night a chance at revenge. Swept by too much emotions, she accepted, and trained hard for a year or so, before finally returning back to normal life, with the skills of an Infiltrator and Assassin.>

<Scarlet Red, rough and short>
<Same as mane, Scarlet Red, but long and rough>
<Two arrows arranged in a circular fashion that point from head to tail. Sorta like a item swap button. Symbolizes his special talent, to be able to utilize almost every tool and item with basic trained proficiency. The catch being that it's harder to become experienced>
<Scar on the left cheek, is normally seen in a somewhat larger than normal and well armored and high-quality custom armor called "Titanius" Armor (Given by a town renowned for weapons/armorsmithing, after clearing out a monster infestation in their mines). Almost never seen without less than three weapons. He currently "favors" three weapons, namely: Crystalx (Sword, looted from a Cultist leader, who looted it from a Captain of the Honor Guard, who inherited it from his Father, another Captain. Simply put. It's got a long history. Masterwork quality.) Khonelius (Single-bladed Battle Axe, a gift from a Griffon Blacksmith who defected from a group of Die-hard traditionalist warriors, the group having harassing a few towns on the eastern border, multiple times. Journeyman quality) Etherion (Spear, obtained the same way as the Titanius Armor, but of Apprentice quality.) all looted or gifted, and with their own history, all of >
<Exotic weaponry - especially those with a past> <Honor and justice as concepts and virtues> <The remnants of his family> <Stories of the past/Exotic lore>
<The current war> <Anypony who threatens his lineage, or mocks it> <Cheap gear> <Sneaky bastards>
<To help the next rightful ruler of the throne ascend. Which he believes is NOT Blueblood> <Live to see the end of the civil war, hopefully with his family intact too, or what's left of it>
<The death of his entire family> <Equestria descending into a place of anarchy> <Death itself (Traumatized by the events of her elder sister's death, though he staved it off the best he can, he knows that death before duty his duty is done will just be... shameful)>
<Generally prefers to be alone> <Portrays the "stranger" type personality, opting not to reveal much other than his name.
<Born into Ponyville, into a family with quite a lineage stretching back to pre-Hearths Warming Eve, he was named according to a strict and ancient family tradition. His younger sister hadn't been born yet, and his older sister was half way through school> <Had a somewhat high aptitude in Mathematics and the Sciences, to his parent's delight, and was also athletic> <However, unlike his parents, who sought to lessen the number of traditions remaining, Raklos wanted to embrace them all, disproving of his parent's modernization> <Just before Raklos finished school, his younger sister was born. He spent more time around his elder/younger siblings than others> <At the end of his education, he wanted to follow the now-rescinded tradition of stallions joining the military. His family decided otherwise, rather Raklos enlisted into a University at Canterlot.>
<When he finally graduated out of school, he once more appealed to his parents to do military service, and once more, was denied. Besides, the family had packed for Canterlot already, planning to stay at their grandparent's residence> <Ambushed by bandits who came by chance. Older sister stood up against the bandits, and was rewarded with death. Family possessions were ransacked and pillaged. Trip continued on as normal, albit with morale hitting bottom> <Once in Canterlot, Raklos swore vengeance against the bandits, and this time, his parent's could not stop him, and Raklos began his long audacious quest of revenge> <As time went on, he became more inclined to rage, anger, and vengeance, emotions dangerously motivating to any Guardsman>
<Although his rage went unchecked, mainly because the end result of sending Raklos in was good, High Command finally snapped when Raklos broke off mission objectives and perused a Bandit whom he believed was one of the killers. Turns out he wasn't and it was all for naught.> <Brought back to explain his actions, he was forced into court-martial, but let off with a minor sentence, because the chased bandit was the group leader, and by cascade effect, the minions broke off> <Raklos then began to exercise more discipline. He played the patient hunter, and his prey came to him eventually> <Searched for, and successfully killed the last bandit, in the Northern mountains, returning in time to see Equestria erupt into a civil war, and the Honor Guard disbanded (there was no need for it anymore).>
